Approximately 330 participants from 30 countries attended the 70th Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute (GCFI) conference held in Merida, Mexico during 4-10 November 2017. The conference featured a symposium on Acoustic Technologies to Improve Reef Fish Ecosystem Surveys, whichprovided presentations on the various acoustic technologies used to monitor reef fish ecosystems. An acoustic workshop was also held to build scientific capacity and foster collaborative acoustic expertise, in order to enhance research and survey operations in reef-fish ecosystems. Recognizing the connectivity of marine populations across the geopolitical jurisdictions of the wider Caribbean region, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) supported the GCFI Ocean Innovation Strategic Initiative grant to build scientific capacity in the region for the sustainability of living.....
